The One After The Proposal
Written by: Cloken
I spent a month reading every single episode of Friends, and really much Fanfic's so this will be perfect. (I know it's kinda Monica-isch) I didn't really know what to do. A future episode or a pick-up-where-they-left-of-episode. So it's kinda like The One With The Thanksgiving Flashbacks, only it's a flash forward. It's about the six friends "dreaming" about the future, and we get to see the real thing. It takes place after Chandler proposes to Monica, cause that was the perfect opportunity to start dreaming about the future. I'm babbling, uh?

[Central Perk: The gang is just hanging out, like always.]
Phoebe: I still can't believe you guys are getting married.
Chandler: Why? Regrets?
Phoebe: Yes, acutely, I think it's sad, if you found out your true feelings wen you met, you now could be where you are in like five years.
Ross: Yeah, but where are they in five years?
Rachel: If it were you probably divorced or sleeping with the girl from the Xerox place.
Ross: We were
All: On a break.
Joey: We know that, Ross.
Ross: (trying to change the subject.) So, where will we be in five years?
(Imagine if U like what they would look like in season 7)
[Chandler and Monica's: They have a house now, and everyone is present, and a few more.]
On the screen appears 2005
Ross: So, Public Access Magazine asked me for an interview.
Chandler: Why? To talk about your fifth (yes, FIVE) divorce?
Ross: No, about that bone I found. Plus you can't blame me for the fifth time, she was cheating on me!
Rachel: And that makes your four other divorces okay?
(Two kids, a boy and a girl, about the same age come out of the kitchen)
Andrew: You SO do not!
Kate: And what about you? Look I'm Andrew Bing, could I BE anymore stupid!
Joey: They sure take after their father.
Monica: Kids, we have company.
Kate: I'm sorry mom, but Andy and I were having this argument.
Chandler: We can see that, but what's it about?
Andrew: Well, I was saying that Phoebe is getting married to Dave.
Kate: They aren't even engaged yet!
(Dave and Phoebe a little uncomfortable)
Phoebe: That's kinda what we wanted to tell
Dave: We got engaged!
All: Congrats! That's great! Etc.
Rachel: Well, now Joey is the last one to get married.
Monica: Well, he kinda was 5 years ago
Joey: Hey, I got Allyson, but she's not that ready to get married.
Dave: She or you?
Joey: I have no idea.
Mark: (Not the one that got R&R to break up.) We should really be going, Rachel, we kinda have reservations.
Rachel: Okay, in a sec, Ross, Ben is really okay with babysitting Andrew, Kate and my little Seth?
Monica: Yeah, where is that no-good son of yours?
Ross: My no-good son is working on his "How to seduce women" paper.
The scene fades into Central Perk
[Central Perk: The scene goes on like there never was a flash forward.]
Monica: I don't know, probably married to Chandler, a kid, I don't know.
Phoebe: Yeah, how are you gonna name the kid? I think you should do me a favor, because I named my kid Chandler.
Chandler: (In a childish voice) But she's a girl.
Monica: Well, I love Anna.
Chandler: Or Sara?
Monica: Yeah, but Anna is cuter.
Chandler: How's that?

Monica: I like it, but then what about Kathy?
Chandler: No! Remember my earlier relationships? But how do you feel about Kate?
Monica: YES! Kate and Andrew Bing. That's so perfect! I love U!
Chandler: First: well I'm also perfect and second I love U, too!
[Central Perk: And we are back in the past or present?]
Rachel: I'm going for a refill, anyone want something?
All: Yeah, I could you some (cake, coffee, latte, )
Rachel: I said anyone, not everyone!
Ross: That's kinda the same, if you're asking a question.
Chandler: What did we say about correcting grammar?
Ross: Do it?
Phoebe: As punishment you are going to help Rachel bring the coffee.
(He goes and does so )
Phoebe: Now that he's out of the picture, will they ever get back together?
Joey: For the what, billioned time?
[Ross's place: Rachel and Ross are making out on the chair.]
On the screen appears 2002
Rachel: How did that happen?
Ross: We were talking and then
(she kisses him again )
Ross: That happened
Rachel: But why?
Rachel: You don't except me to come back to you because you kissed me?
Ross: No, just take it in consideration, and you'll discover your true feelings.
Rachel: Witch are?
Ross: I don't know for you, but I know that in my case it's love
Rachel: You love me?
Ross: I never stopped doing that.
Rachel: I don't get it, I knew I loved you but, I don't know if I still do, it's been so long.
Ross: I know, think about it.
(Rachel didn't really hear that, she's just thinking -out loud)
Rachel: If you were asking me, do I love you? I don't know, but have I forgiven you? Kind of, you earned my trust back but do I love you? I, I, I'm gonna try, no matter what.
Ross: Does that mean what I think it means?
Rachel: If it means that we're getting back together, yes!
(They engage in hug, that quickly becomes a kiss, and evolves in -you-know-)
[Rachel and Phoebe's: They still live together but Phoebe is seriously involved with Dave so she's not home.]
On the screen appears "eight months later"
Rachel: Ross! We have a problem!
Ross: But we can work on it!
Rachel: No, Ross, not anymore! What you did was soooooo low, it's the most low thing you have ever done!
Ross: And the time I slept with the girl from the Xerox place?
Rachel: Ross! Don't put gas on a burning fire!
Ross: Look, I don't know what is so bad! We just kissed!
Rachel: You kissed?
Ross: You didn't know that?
Rachel: No, I thought you just went out!
Ross: But it's not like she's the love of my life!
Rachel: The point is, that you did it again! You just, ugh!
(Rachel goes into her room and shuts the door in Ross's face.)
Rachel: Just go!
[Central Perk: The gang is still there, dhuu ]
Chandler: So, honey what do you think our future looks like?
Monica: Very beautiful.
Chandler: I can't wait to start a family with you.
(The kiss on that remark.)
Phoebe: I wonder
Joey: Bout what?
Phoebe: I just can't see Chandler like the fatherish type
Monica: How come?
Phoebe: I don't know, he just has the reputation of non-committed kinda guy, and a family is like the biggest commitment you'll ever make.
Joey: No, it's not, look at Ross, he divorced 3 times and has a kid, you don't see him walking around like he's committed.
Rachel: But after all those years, we know that Ross is one of a kind.

Doctor: Push! You are doing great!
Monica: That from a man who doesn't have any kids coming out of his uterus!
Doctor: I'll ignore that remark.
Chandler: Okay, I'm gonna watch.
Chandler: Ow my god! I see a head! And shoulders and, and, it's a boy!
Doctor: No, that's the umbilical cord, it's a girl.
Chandler: How my god, our little Kate, can I hold her?
Monica: Can I see her?
Doctor: She's perfect. But one more push and you'll have your boy too!
Chandler: Wow! Now, that's a boy!
